This book is the first truly thorough and honest 'warts-and-all' biography, covering all aspects of the ABBA members' lives and careers: the period before the group came together, the amazing success story of the Seventies, their marriage and divorces, the ups and downs of their business empire and their careers after the group.The bulk of the book focuses on the ABBA years. As the story of the group and its members develop, the book takes a look at the group's musical development, offering an insightful critique of their songs in terms of European tradition. Similarly the ABBA story is related in the context of Swedish history and culture.
